We have close links with top universities, and a dedicated Head of Sixth Form is able to respond quickly to the constantly shifting higher education landscape. Each Sixth Form student is assigned a Tutor, usually a specialist in a pupil's field of interest, who provides ongoing support and guidance throughout Sixth Form.
BSKL enjoys a close and fruitful relationship with Universities and Higher Education providers. From the Year 10, students are encouraged to consider future choices in higher education, and career opportunities post Sixth Form, though it is crucial they keep their options open at this stage. BSKL organises Higher Education information sessions for students and parents aimed at guiding them through the university application process. The vast majority of our students aspire to study at Russell Group universities in the UK, including Oxford and Cambridge, while the USA is also a popular university destination.
Our Careers Office is dedicated to providing students with the appropriate information they need to apply, as well as assisting with mock interviews and writing the personal statement. Pupils attend university and careers fairs locally, and the school hosts Admissions Officers from universities in the UK, USA, Malaysia and Australia to visit the school. Post-GCSE our Year 11 pupils will attend a one week Higher Education Conference in the UK or Malaysia: this is an opportunity for pupils to visit a range of top universities, meet admissions tutors, and to begin to refine their degree aspirations ahead of A Level courses.
All students will join the Independent Schools Careers Organisation (ISCO) Futurewise programme to allow personalised careers information and feedback. The school is a member of ISCO and SI-UK (Study in the UK) and will use both of these services to support your child with Careers and University advice and guidance. BSKL also has access to expert SAT and ACT advisors.
